ITT: The first time you beat a game and the ending made you feel something

Beat Links Awakening
It was all a dreamworld
Waking the Windfish ends the dream, and thus the lives of everyone in it to save Links own life
At the end hes back on the shipwreck from the storm in the opening, he looks up at the sky and sees a lone seagull intimated to be the spirit of Marin who remains as just an echo of the cute girl who helped Link throughout his journey without knowing it meant her own demise.

The perfect ending hints that she is the origin of the great fairy and later reincarnates along with her father Tarin as Malon and Talon of Holodrum and lonlon ranch in hyrule however the release of an official timeline years later in Hyrule Historia puts the game far to the end of the timeline and thus invalidates what was suggest in the Zelda games of the 1990's

So you play another zelda with at the time the most cutesy artstlye of them all only for it to have the most self centered, nihilistic ending of the lot.

I played it when i was around 8 years old and it was the first videogame ending that actually had some emotional impact, i couldnt put my finger on it at the time being a kid but almost 20 years later i can look back at a really fucked up ending for a game marketed to little kids.

Still a hell of a good game i dearly love regardless.

really fucked up ending for a game marketed to little kids.

Link's Awakening was inspired by Twin Peaks.

What I really like about it is that while it is emotional, it doesn't try to shove FEELS into your face, most of it is very subtle.

One of my favorite aspects of the story telling in the game are the owl statues that give you vague hints about the nature of the wind fish and koholint island

THE WIND FISH IN NAME ONLY, FOR IT IS NEITHER

The fact that this game was one of the most underrated ds games i ever played,the basic premise was with your poor created avatar save the world by restoring the town and save it from the darkness,while the first game s ending was sad and being a cliffhanger ending,the sequel s ending on the other side was pretty sad that envolved Everything being a dream by a kid in a comma and some characters represented him like Wilfre

I am trying to think. The first game I ever beat was Star Fox on the SNES. Before that I just thought games went forever (I was very young, I think 5 or 6).

It wasn't the ending per se. But having beat it, I realized that things could be beaten. It had a big impact on how I viewed things.

This one hit me hard.
The end of the last mission comes fast out of nowhere as you're defending a convoy of civilian transports fleeing the shivan advance after the GTVA's efforts to defend the system has been shattered. Then suddenly you get a countdown and are told the shivans just blew up the star, when the countdown reaches zero the shockwave reaches you, be out of the system before then if you want to live, but buy time for the civilian transports until then. And here's the kicker, the civies won't all make it in time.
First time I got here, I was still fighting off shivan bombers and corvettes when the time ran out…

Play Link's Awakening in the '90s at school in an emulator without music.
That was a good game.
Eventually got a real Gameboy, the game and a million batteries.
Beat the game again but with music this time.
Can't stop crying. Tears rolling down my cheeks.
First time I actually cried with a game ending.

Nathan Price

Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale also let profound impressions, they had a better ending than both Baldur's Gate.

Icewind Dale's was a more Hollywood-like ending, sure, but it was so well done. That music, that twist, it was perfect. I remember staying through all the credits, listening to a now-calmer music while saying my goodbyes to that gigantic tree growing in the artic.

But Planescape: Torment was a more personal ending. After all my difficulties, finding a permament ending to a quest that looked eternal was very shocking. Thiking too much about the fact that both eternity and mortality are horrible options is pretty tiring, too.

My nigga, this is my favorite game of all time for just how simple and bittersweet the story was with my favorite song in the series. beat me to it. It's the one game that I both would both love and be horrified to hear Nintendo say they're looking at, but given the climate in the industry I hope it stays long untouched.

Even the manga was great, especially when Link learns the truth and tries so hard to hold onto the dream. To the point of trying to keep from killing the monsters. . .

I had forgotten about tumblr. . .now I'm thinking just how they can ruin it

Link is finally a girl, Marin is her lesbian companion with problem hair, who seeks to escape the island, and sings in ke$ha style auto tune. The windfish is a healthy at any weight tumblr land whale with blue hair and tats, and the island is a big metaphor for the patriarchy.

Excuse me while I kill myself.

Back when it came out I didn't know any english, so I just played most games guessing what the story was and the emotional moments didn't touch me.

Super Metroid.
I mostly felt fear, though. The game gives you such a huge sensory overload, and the Mother brain's sound design is huge and grating.I was 8 at the time and spent most of the fight trying not to freeze up.

Final Fantasy 9 got me more in the way the OP is looking for though….
I mean, I didn't keep Garnet's name as "dagger" so the wording had much less impact, but it was still pretty great knowing exactly what was going to happen and just waiting to see the look on her face when it did.

Blank Dream had me fucking crying, though. It had me completely fooled. I've never been happier to be set up like that.
A shame Markiplier never finished it after what happened. It might've helped him.

They're still ashamed to be seen with a handheld gaming device, because gaming is only trendy when you're doing it with other people in approved circumstances. Also, they aren't as graphically pretty as the console ones, which people care a lot about.

The Zelda 4 manga is unique in that it actually tries (and succeeds) in staying very loyal to the game. This includes little quests and items. I'm very thankful they added more scenes with Marin.

Those guys really remixed the whole game.
Link's Awakening was the first Zelda in adding new music in every dungeon.

You know, the whole thing probably messed up with Link really hard.
It's a nice thing he don't talk in the games. The guy had some hard moments in his many incarnations.

There were some games that really got some nice impact, whole Shadow Hearts series was powerful, but the second is the best one. The ending, that brings both hope to one characters, and a sad future to the other. And all while fighting a good man that lost everything because of "collateral damage" caused by people thirst for power. A love story that became real, but not in classic way. Damn I love that game.

Another one that I never imagine that would have some impact was MK9.
During the whole game, they make sure that things are not working out for Raiden and the crew, and to the very end, they never do. Every victory was pyrrhic, costing more to achieve, to the very end, when all they did by defeating the danger of Shao Khan, was to make things easier for Shinok and Quan Chi.
It's sad they didn't had the balls to keep this on MK X. That story mode was terrible.

Cameron Turner

Portal's whole endgame sequence is the stuff of legends.
My biggest shock was realizing that the reason everyone likes so much the end song is because you have been listening to it constantly. Pic related.

I got stuck at Portal 2's selection screen, immediatly after beating the game. No tears this time, just silence.

That ending took me completely by surprise. Shed some tears too. And oh god, that music.

Do you think Marin was a projection of what Link wanted? His perfect girl? It sort of makes sense when you think about it.

Liam Anderson

That was such a fucked up choice, Link either had to kill everyone by waking the Wind Fish, or he had to essentially let everyone die slowly because of the Nightmares.

Links Awakening is honestly the game I play whenever I start to get disillusioned with vidya, it's the game I play to remember why I still love video games and why I still believe in them.

Kayden Richardson

Link's Awakening to me is the greatest example of how to do a game story without sacrificing any of the game. While the game did sort of put you on a track as far as dungeons went, it was such a wide track that I wanted to explore it and play through it, and as you play you search for hints and sometimes find clues to the truth, subtly pulling you while the characters were so inviting you never wanted to leave. The music compliments everything so well, the ballad was so melancholy to me the first time I heard it, and when I understood why, and when it was over I understood why. The narrative is so light and unremarkable at first because for me, I was the story. As Link, I looked for a way out, to find a way of the island, only to find in the end I met my objective, but it long ceased to be what I wanted. So many games beat you over the head with cutscenes and voice work. In those games, the writers seem to feel they constantly have to remind you why you care, and games that are sold and touted as art are just exhibit pieces. Link's Awakening, to me, is a great example of how games are their own medium. It was an adventure I lived, and the story was driven forward by my own feelings and attachments to the world and characters, and of all the Zelda's, was the one where the name Link, being his role in linking the world and player, was fulfilled to it's fullest.

Sorry for the autistic rant and shit grammer, I just really love this game and can't help but gush.

You know what OP, the first game I beat was probably Link's Awakening too, but when Link went up the stairs to meet the windfish, and the dialogue with him ends, the game always softlocked. So I thought that was the actual ending, no credits or anything, just Link looking at the windfish hovering while some calming music played. To this day I don't know if that was some sort of anti piracy method or my game was corrupted or something.

The moment that hit me the hardest in PS:T wasn't the ending. It actually was reading the memory of yourself lying to Deionarra and meeting with her father right after.

She cucked you while you were in jail, the kid isn't yours.

Seen a lot of people mention Mother 3 as a great game over the years, but I've also seen people endlessly praise Earthbound saying that the gameplay was great when it's worse than your average jRPG, praising the igetthatreference.jpg humour, calling the tame soundtrack unforgettable and saying that the plot is the best thing in gaming when it's copy-pasted from the DBZ Trunks saga. So my question is this: is Mother 3 an actual good game in its own right or is it just more nostalgia goggles/people masturbating to it because Earthbound was popular?

FUCK TUMBLRTALE

Id like to start out by saying, that i think all you people who play tumblrtale suck a big fat goat dick.

now, to move on

I think TUMBLRCUCKS are pathetic. all they do is sit around with their big lips and collect welfare. and if they're not doing that, theyre robbing, raping, stealing, murdering, or in jail. So id like to give a big fuck you to all you tumblrites out there. By the way, im not really racist, i have a tumblrite NIGGER in my family tree. Hes been hanging there about 20 years (badumdum!)

Now on to SJWTALE cucks. they are like a mixture of tumblrcucks and bunnies. they also sit around and collect welfare, but they have a different method. They all reproduce at an amazing rate, and then the welfare collection moves on into the next generation. They really all should be lined up and shot, with their goy clothes and their nigger skeleton flags. And, like tumblrcucks, they go out robbing, raping, mugging, stealing, murdering, and end up in jail.

WHY ARE PEOPLE LIKE THIS ALLOWED IN Holla Forums?

Jews. Hitler was right. They are nothing but money grubbing little fucks. like that guy toby fox, look at him. He makes a pointless game, sells a million some copies, AND THAT ISNT ENOUGH. now he has to make a movie too. That movie is going to suck, just like him, and just like all his fans. Hes a self centered piece of shit, just like every other jew ive met. And whats this deal with jews whining about the holocaust?!?! they gotta make movies, books, whatever. Its all about money with them. they cant spend their own money and get on a public access channel and whine about it, no they gotta set up a holocaust memorial, bug that faggot jew steven spielberg to make a movie that sold out, and a bunch of other shit. fuck jews.

Undertalefags. Well, Undertalefags are their own category. It seems they just dont get it. WE DONT CARE THAT YOU LIKE TUMBLRTALE! GET OUT OF MY Holla Forums! I know if i had kids i wouldnt want em to be seein a bunch of cum guzzlin tumblrtales walkin down the street with their womanly manhood dangling around screamin we want tumblrtale discussion….

YOU HAVE TUMBLRTALE DISCUSSION! YOU HAVENT BEEN B& YET! YOU SHOULD BE HAPPY!

All they do is fuck like bunnies and spread the tumblrcuck virus. I hope they kill themselves off soon.

Tumblrtales are out to ruin the economy. Look at em with their piece of shit meme games. Why do they have to evade our economy? I mean, i dont see anything wrong with them sellin shit over here, but they practically SHOVE IT DOWN OUR THROATS! and YOU FUCKERS keep buying the shit. I say we send a couple more sage-bombs over there, take care of their tumblr asses.

Goat molesters make me sick, but they keep popping up! Whats this world coming to when these guys can peddle their goatkiddy porn over the internet! ITS SICK! All those goatkiddy porn fuckers should be castrated with plastic forks and burned at the stake.

Tumblrtales. God i fucking hate Tumblrtales. LEAVE ME ALONE! All they do is whine about how people are going to go to hell and try and convert people! GET A LIFE! god damn sexually dysfunctional little fucks! You should all be burned at the stake like you did to the pagans! I fucking hate you all!

You know what, I'm not finished. This game just cannot decide on its tone. One moment you've got cute animals and pirate otters and people and towns named after food, and the next people start getting killed. There's a world tree in this game called Yggsalad. Yggsalad. A little girl tries to sacrifice her own townsfolk to the tree and eventually sacrifices herself instead. Fucking EGG SALAD, DEVOURER OF SOULS.

Half Life 2 episode 2.

This game is a hidden masterpiece. Most Americans never played or even know about its existence because it was only released in Europe.

Seriously, not kidding here: When you first step into the Underworld and that music starts to play you KNOW that this game will be a Masterpiece. The Menu was something that you appreciate just for how they made it look so good - And when you start Reviving stuff! When I first revived a Continent, the whole cinematic, music, and overall atmosphere were really engulfing, total immersion!

My first experience playing Link's Awakening was during an after-school program during Elementary school. The program had a few gameboys and they'd let people play them for a span of half an hour before they had to switch them off. I ended up getting into an agreement with another kid that we'd share the same save file and play through it together so another brat wouldn't delete our file.

Neither of us wanted to wake up the Windfish.

I didn't cry, but man was it satisfying to see those pictures. Shame Dark Dawn wasn't nearly as good. I was hoping for more Golden Suns from Camelot.

Heading into the final missions in that game was really nice. I'm glad I played basically every AC game blind. I wouldn't say the stories were award winning, but it really fits the world it was in.

I'll be interested to see how they handle this situation with Gravity Rush 2. Hopefully they don't just gloss over it and never talk about it again.

I heard there's parts of it where you hear a faint voice calling for the MC and it's actually people outside of the dreamworld trying to wake him up. I really like it when devs put rather "mature" themes in children's games.
How many games let you play as a cat?

Anyhow, my addition. I don't know why exactly I got such an emotive response from TWEWY, I guess it's half "man I really don't want this game to end" and half story related reasons. It's one of those games that did everything right with its hardware, I think.

Man, figuring out the TWEEST with Link's Awakening was something I should have seen coming from the beginning, given the title of the game. But it still hit me hard, especially when one realizes what waking the wind fish does to the island you've been exploring and so forth upon the entire time.

The worst part of the thing, is that it did probably the most soul-crushing thing any Zelda title could do to any Lunk: He found a loving, caring and cheerful waifu named Marin, got to know her so much, chatted with her, and even (from what can be informed) was leaving him hopeful when this ended they could be together. But he would be left to realize that in stopping the evil of the island and fixing shit via the wind fish, the waifu he loved the entire time was going to stop existing forever more. And now with Lunk left never to see or hear her ever again, he has to live with the fact that Marin is gone forever.

You never truly know how much you miss someone or something until it's gone or about go away forever. And Link learned this lesson the hard way.

Jeremiah Lee

It's a lose-lose situation for Lunk. If he remembers it all, he'll remember Marin and that she's gone, that he'll never see her again because she doesn't exist anymore. But if doesn't remember a thing, then it leaves Marin in basically a Xion situation: Never meant to be, and no one will ever remember her ever again. And Link, after all he did to try to be able to get close to her and even promise to remember her always, would be left to forget he ever met her, or even her name or face. Sure, he had the adventure, but he'll never be able to remember the details ever again. Left to feel a pain in his heart he can never explain, of a promise he can never truly keep.

10/10 would replay anually

This game is the quintessential example of how story should function within a videogame. Not overbearing, lets the player connect dots, makes the player care about what happens, and MOTIVATES him to do what he at first thought was impossible.

Okami probably had some of the best emotional peaks in any videogame I've played. When you fight Orochi for the first time captures the whole final boss feeling perfectly.

I was completely and utterly caught off guard when I realized that was only the first major boss fight in the game.

And then there is Oni Island, the fight against Oki, then the fight against Lechku and Nechku with Shiranui.

Not to mention the actual final fight.

Yami's final form has the whole battlefield shrouded in darkness Ammy's left powerless and at death's door after he destroys the constellations again.

Issun finally gets everyone you met to pray to Ammy. One by one the praise orbs gather around her, each constellation twinkles back into the sky. There's a howl, 天, The Sun Rises starts playing.

It's my favorite final boss fight. Every part of bit of it was perfectly executed and presented.

I actually felt a bit sad after I was done and I realized the game was finally over.

I haven't played it in years. I should give it another go.

Speaking of oni island, that fucking boss fight with ninetails and how she fucking hijacks your paintbrush screen and does brush techniques against you

Brilliant. It's like if in a resident evil game a monster could fuck you up on the pause screen.

And yeah, the final boss battle was one of the best climaxes I've experienced in video games.

But what really got me was Issun's backstory and when he realizes what's his true purpose. Inspiring as fuck.

I also should replay it soon. It's time.

Fucking Final Fantasy Tactics

Be a kid when I get FFT
From the very moment the intro came up I knew I was gonna play something good
Was fucking retarded and kept learning mechanics of the game like setting up units, changing classes, etc. by trial and error and resetting many times
Keep playing the game on and off throughout the years
As I keep growing I understand the plot much better
Get engrossed with it when I grow up and play it nonstop
Unlock Ninja and discover the powerhouse that is a Two Swords Monk Ramza
Get fucking hyped when I get Agrias, Cid and Meliadoul
Do some extra quests and get Cloud and Worker No. 7
Just fuck around and enjoy the game
Eventually reach the ending
>Ramza did a lot of heroic feats and fought for what he believed was right only to be labelled as the scum of Ivalice, while Delita manipulated and backstabbed his way to the throne and was hailed a hero
>That after-credits scene where Ovelia stabs Delita and he kills her in return.
Hear this at the credits

Very few games have given me the sense of melancholy and closure I felt that day.
The other game that made me feel that much was Nier.

I remember I got to the part where the Colonel starts explaining everything. And for some reason, I suddenly felt really sick in my stomach. I was incredibly uncomfortable and I remember muting the sound, even though I don't remember what he was saying.

It would be years later I looked it up and realized that what was being said was disturbingly prophetic.

It's sad they didn't had the balls to keep this on MK X. That story mode was terrible.

Actually it's better this way than a repeat of the story from MK9. There needed to be a conclusion but what happens at the very end is uncertainty now that Raiden is corrupt. The only thing that let the story down in MKX is the power of friendship theme. Shit is like an 80's Saturday morning cartoon and is excessive.

Carson Taylor

I just kept playing the game throughout my younger years. Every time I reset the game I understood something about the game better, be it the plot or the game mechanics, and understanding the story better made me appreciate other things more. Even nowadays I keep discovering things I didn't think about before. Finishing the game and hearing the opening credits made me shed a few tears because I knew I had finished something fucking amazing throughout the years, like saying goodbye to a good old friend.

Seeing the current state of Final Fantasy and seeing Matsuno being delegated to mobile makes me rage fucking hard, especially after playing through TO: LUCT and Vagrant Story. He deserves far better than that. We all deserve Matsuno's genius far more than the putrid shit Square keeps pumping out.

I think one of the most important things to note about Links Awakening is that barring the beginning and the ending, there is only one real cutscene. Yes, there's plenty of times when the game takes control and plays out scenes in front of you, but the only time the view of the game actually shifts into an even slightly cinematic moment is when you're on the beach with Marin. The fact that this is the only time this happens during the entirety of the game makes this moment very powerful, doubly so because it hammers home how much Link (and the players) have come to care for Marin.

The Wonderful 101. By the time I had hit the end it made me feel exhausted like I had actually traveled through all of the events of the game, with every step forward being met by another setback and how all of the character's armor slowly becomes more and more damaged as you barely scrape through each oncoming fight. The ending felt so satisfying after it was all done, like the Wonderful ones had actually earned their happy ending.

You will notice that the overwhelming majority of games in this thread are nip games. Why are Japs so much fucking better at making videogames that make the player feel emotions than western developers? Like, I mostly play western games and there are fucktons of them that are great, but almost all of them are great simply because the gameplay is fun. The only games that I really got emotional in any way with are Japanese games. Is this just because we are a bunch of fucking weebs or are Jap devs just better?

As a tangent, game music. This is something that I have been thinking about for awhile, but why are Japs so much better at music in video games? Obviously there are some exceptions such as Hotline Miami, but there are very, very few western games where the music is very memorable. On the other hand, it seems like every other good Jap game has a great OST. Christ, even the niche low budget fishing game I played on PSX had great music, embed related.

This is going to sound like a nippon stronk post, but I really don't mean it like that. As I said, I mostly play Western games but it really does seem like Japs have something better going than us when it comes to emotional games and game OSTs.

The ending is good and makes sense.
Too bad Zelda is not an important character, again

My top 6 Zelda endings in terms of how many tears were shed:

6- A Link to the Past ("… and the Master Sword sleeps again, FOREVER!")
5- Link's Awakening (Marin sees the world is ending and decides to keep singing)
4- A Link Between Worlds (Hilda crying after seeing the triforce restored)
3- Wind Waker (When the music starts in the post-credits sequence)
2- Ocarina of Time (The whole ending sequence is filled with goosebumps. What kills me is the very very last scene.)
1- Twilight Princess (The subtle Midna music that sounds after the mirror is shattered into millions of pieces)

Special mention to Skyward Sword. Not a memorable ending, but transforming a perfect douche like Groose into a character you'd look up to is impressive. Spirit Tracks had a nice ending, too.

Adrian Cook

"Forever"

Noah Rivera

Also the opening to WW got me more. I was ready for the first next gen Zelda assuming it was another stand alone adventure that the internet was shitting on as "Celda was going to ruin Nintendo".

Then the opening happens and at the time you assume "Wait, so Link never came out of the Lost Woods after Majora? did he die? was my entire beloved adventure in Ocarina completely pointless?"

It loaded the player with these melancholy feelings of uselessness and that only builds you up more with the 'Your Imouto has been kidnapped!' idea.

Still the fact that everything was fucked and you didn't fail, you simply were not there meant the world felt kind of hopeless and downtrodded. Then you get to Hyrule and fuuuuucck.

Look up the Zelda symphony live performances of the Links Awakening songs. They're fucking 10/10.

That game and it's music are so underrated it's not even funny. Clean as fuck platformer with great controls, actual secrets, and an excellent soundtrack. It should be in a museum.

Ouch, user. I know the pain of not having your copy of the game, but somebody else's that they got rid of.

I need to play this game. Which version is best? PS2? Wii? (Wii would be easier for me as it emulates better)

Link's Awakening DX
those digits

user, the original is so nuch better. Why the fuck they took out the warping I will never know.

Why the fuck they took out the warping I will never know
Memory constraints maybe? I mean it was in colour and they threw in the extra dungeon plus it was a release title for GBC.
To be honest though I never even noticed that they'd took warping out. Probably because there was so much time between my playing the original and DX

Wild Arms 4, the rest of the WA games generally had happy endings so WA4 kinda threw me of a loop, not just on the ending but how dark it was, lot of people died and none of your characters ever see each other again or get to much of a happy ending, hell one of your party members straight up dies.
